This is version 1.0 (and most likely the only one).
My mock draft:
1. Astros – P Mark Appel, Stanford. It comes down to him or Buxton.
2. Twins – OF Byron Buxton, Georgia HS. Correa gaining.
3. Mariners – SS Carlos Correa, Puerto Rico. The Mariners are unpredictable. I think it comes down to Correa or Buxton
4. Orioles – P Kevin Gausman, LSU. Bundy and Gausman could form a lethal combination.
5. Royals – P Kyle Zimmer, San Francisco. Will they pass on Zunino? Will they gamble on Giolito?
6. Cubs – OF Albert Almora, Florida HS. Correa dropping could make this pick interesting.
7. Padres – P Max Fried, California HS. Zunino is a possibility.
8. Pirates – C Mike Zunino, Florida. Zunino could go anywhere, staring at #3. Marrero is a possibility.
9. Marlins – P Andrew Heaney, Oklahoma State. Almora was the ideal choice.
10. Rockies – OF Courtney Hawkins, Texas HS.
11. Athletics – P Lance McCullers, Florida HS. Could Billy Beane figure out a way to afford Giolito?
12. Mets – 3B Corey Seager, NC HS. Wright heir-apparent? I like Seager more than most.
13. White Sox – P Marcus Stroman, Duke. In the race, how about a Chris Sale redux.
14. Reds – P Michael Wacha, Texas A&M.
15. Indians – P Chris Stratton, Mississippi State.
16. Nationals – OF David Dahl, Alabama HS.
17. Blue Jays – P Brian Johnson, Florida. I think the Blue Jays are going to save here to spend later.
18. Dodgers – P Ty Hensley, Oklahoma HS.
19. Cardinals – SS Deven Marrero, Arizona State.
20. Giants – P Shane Watson, California HS.
21. Braves – 3B Richie Shaffer, Clemson.
22. Blue Jays – P Lucas Giolito, California HS.
23. Cardinals – P Matt Smoral, Ohio HS.
24. Red Sox – SS Gavin Cecchini, Louisiana HS.
25. Rays – OF D.J. Davis, Mississippi HS.
26. Arizona – 3B Stephen Piscotty, Stanford.
27. Brewers – C Clint Coultier, Washington HS.
28. Brewers – SS Addison Russell, Florida HS.
29. Rangers – C/OF Stryker Trahan, Louisiana HS.
30. Yankees – P Mitchell Gueller, Washington HS.
31. Red Sox – OF Tyler Naquin, Texas A&M.
32. Twins – P Mitch Brown, Minnesota HS.
Players to be considered at #42: P Lucas Sims, Georgia HS; P Zach Eflin, Florida HS; P J.O. Berrios, Puerto Rico; P Hunter Virant, California HS; P Alec Rash, Iowa HS.
